Capt Eric Anderson is a full time guide and resident of the Fort Myers area, where he spends over 250 days a year on the water. He started guiding in 1980 and has been a guide for everything from Trout to Tarpon in Colorado, Minnesota, Florida, and the Caribbean. Early on he discovered a passion for writing about the tactics and techniques learned by spending lots of time on the water every year. He has been a contributor to many outdoor publications including In-Fisherman, Walleye-Insider, All-At-Sea, and many others. In addition, Capt Eric has been featured on several nationally syndicated television and radio shows.
He is an avid and successful tournament angler, life long fly fisherman and fly casting instructor. Capt Eric is an outstanding and very patient teacher and he will have you casting like a pro with a fly rod in no time at all, and you will learn exactly what you need to do when you get that first strike! Its not often that you have the opportunity to spend time on the water with a guide that has been a professional angler for 35 plus years. Capt Eric can pass along some unique perspectives about the angling industry and what technologies have had the most impact on the sport we love.
Multi-Species Experience Few Can Match
Ask any guide you are considering where besides Fort Myers have they been a fishing guide, and the number of different species they've guided for. A fishing guide with a diverse multi species background has a much broader range of experience to draw from than someone who has only guided in a limited area for a few species. Taking you on a fishing charter requires the same attention to detail and drive to succeed that is the hallmark of every professional angler. It is reassuring to know that your guide has years of experience making those subtle adjustments in location and presentation that give you the very best chance of having a successful day on the water.
